New album called „Bedford School”

8 listopada 2018Aktualności, English

Bedford School is Grzegorz Turnau’s first album in English. It includes songs that had fascinated him since childhood and that largely shaped him as a singer. Never graduating primary music school, he spent the 1980/1981 school year at the Bedford School in England, where he rediscovered the piano, playing by ear and attempting to choose the right chords to his favourite John Lennon and Paul McCartney’s songs. “Some of them are older than me, others – with a few exceptions – date back to the 1970s and 1980s. And yet these brilliant masterpieces could very well have been created yesterday; there’s nothing obsolete about them”, says Grzegorz Turnau.
“Originally, I was going to call the album For No One – in reference to the emblematic ballad by The Beatles. Since I often went back to these songs and played them for pleasure or during house parties, the title seemed appropriate: this album is not “for someone”, just for me. But in the end, I called it “Bedford School”. Why? The explanation can be found in the title song. At least I hope so.” – he states. “This album is an expression of admiration for my IDOLS, as well as a personal souvenir for those who shared (and still share) my musical fascinations and who witnessed my late-night cruises through songbooks, often crooning along.”

The key feature of this album is a casual, homey atmosphere: from intimate songs accompanied by solo piano, to songs saturated with the sound of Irish folk music, recorded with the band Shannon and its’ charismatic lead-singer Maria Rumińska, to stronger touches with musicians frequently contributing with Grzegorz (Cezary Konrad, Jacek Królik, Robert Kubiszyn, Robert Majewski and Leszek Szczerba), whereas the sound was produced by Leszek Kamiński. In addition to the original title song, the album consists of many famous songs from artists such as The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Donald Fagen, Sting and Queen, arranged in the distinctive style of Grzegorz Turnau.
